The vineyard "Il Grappolo" covers about 25 acres at south of Montalcino, in the heart of Tuscany, about 90 km from Florence and 30 km from Siena, between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the hills of Maremma, an area rich in Mediterranean vegetation.
The vineyards enjoy optimum exposure and a particular geological formation of the land. These values, together with a microclimate particularly suitable for the vine, to the thinning and to the selection of grapes before the grape harvest (only first choice for the production of “Brunello di Montalcino "), always guarantee great wines.
The philosophy of the vineyard is expressed in the research of the highest possible quality combining respect for the tradition of this land evoked for great wines to the application of state-of-art technologies.
The many accolades and awards received from various institutions in recent years confirm this commitment and passion for a unique area for the production of great wines.
The lands today on which there are the vineyards of Brunello "Il Grappolo" are of ancient cultivation; the large terrace that looks south to the valley of Orcia and west to the valley of the Maremma, has been agricultural land since Etruscan times.
The castle dates from the 12th century, the first written notices were in 1208. Thereafter, several political and economic influences determined the passage of those lands, already advanced in the cultivation of the vine, to the Republic of Siena, in which the old center of Sant'Angelo in Colle was part with its rural population equally predisposed to the care of the vineyards.
